Step by step
Step 1: Import /create design template
First it is necessary to design your box or use our template. For the quick and easy creation of boxes, visit makeabox.io. Our box consists of the outer shell, a lid and a double foam insert. Once the design is done, send the graphic elements for the outer shell and lid to your laser using the following parameters:
Step 2: Laser process box
We made the outer shell and lid out of ADA Signage, you can use the parameters saved in JobControl® to get close to the correct parameters. The recommended parameters can vary depending on the laser machine used and the laser power of your machine. Position the ADA Signage on the acrylic cutting grid of your Trotec laser and cut the pieces out.
Step 3: Design Foam
We used the Relief mode for the foam to achieve different engraving heights. This enables you to optimally position name tags in different heights in the box. To do so, you just have to define different grayscales in the graphic: The darker the colour, the deeper the engraving. Send the graphics to the laser using the following parameters:
Step 4: Laser process foam
Position the foam in the Trotec laser and cover the rest of the working area. Engrave and cut the two pieces of the insert.
Step 5: Cleaning & Assembly
Put the single pieces of outer shell and lid together. Insert the foam and equip it with your nametags. Also nametags of multiple layers can be excellently presented in this box. A description of how to make this sample is available on our website - Name Tags "Paolas Cupcakes"
The additional bar in the lid holds the presentation box in an oblique position. To transport the box (e.g. when visiting customers), just remove the bar from the lid, put it into the box and close the lid. Impress and amaze your customers with this elegant presentation box.
